Thank You Kevin Frith - Tue Dec 24 2013 08:55 AM

Most of you will remember my "Help Me" post concerning my Grandpa's Service Station shortly after the passing of my Dad. I was looking for a Hayes Visible and a pair of Wayne 60 wide frame pumps. The help and support everyone gave me was very much appreciated. Dick Bennett gave me some leads to call concerning pumps and out of the clear blue sky I get a PM from Kevin Frith offering a pair of Wayne 60 Wide Frame Pumps in extremely good original condition. We agreed on a price and Kevin put me in touch with the freight company he uses and Bingo, the pumps arrived last week and they are exceptional. They are so nice I am considering keeping them as is and adding Ad Glass and distressed decals / original pump plates to match what my Grandpa's would have looked like today.
I can't say enough about the OldGas neighborhood and the quality of people that have helped me along the way.
But, a very special THANK YOU to KEVIN FRITH. He is truly one of the good guys and I want him to know I appreciate what he has done for me and what he does for this hobby.

Now here's hoping Santa brings me a Hayes Visible and and a matching pair of gas pump nozzles for the Wayne 60's!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Pretty high praise from Mike that will be hard to live up to!
I was glad to help, but I also had a couple of pumps that needed to be sold! Granted, they were extremely nice pumps and I always go thru all of my sale pumps and repair any damage and make sure everything works well, like the computers! I wanted to make sure he would be pleased when the pumps landed at his door!
North American Van Lines does a great job on shipping and with 2 pumps going to the same location, their pricing is tremendous! It took less than 7 days to get the pumps from my door to Mikes! It doesn't always work that well, but the planets were in alignment that week!
I've always guaranteed satisfaction on anything I'm selling and maybe that makes me work harder to avoid any problems. Anyway, I'm tickled that you liked the pumps Mike, and hope I can live up to your praise! Thank you so much!
